You are right.  My conclusions were wrong.  It turns out the test is run 
in the ordinary jdbc40 suite.  This suite is still run (both embedded 
and client) even if it seems all its tests have been converted to JUnit. 
  I will file a JIRA for removing them.  Please, tell me if there is a 
good reason for still running them in the old test framework.
